At Brookhurst Primary, safeguarding our children is not just a policy; it's a fundamental pillar of our community ethos. We firmly believe that every child deserves a safe, secure, and nurturing environment, both for their wellbeing and as a prerequisite for effective learning. Understanding that children cannot thrive academically unless they feel completely safe, we place immense importance on creating a protective atmosphere where every child's safety and security are paramount.
Safeguarding is a collective responsibility at Brookhurst. Every member of our staff is trained and committed to identifying and responding to any signs of harm, abuse, neglect, or bullying. We work tirelessly to ensure that our pupils not only are safe but also feel safe in their surroundings, understanding that a sense of security is crucial for their mental and emotional well-being.
Our approach to safeguarding extends beyond the boundaries of our school. We actively collaborate with families, valuing their crucial role in the safeguarding process. We understand that parents and guardians are key partners in ensuring the safety and wellbeing of their children, and we strive to maintain open, transparent, and supportive communication with them.
Additionally, our commitment involves working closely with external agencies and specialists to provide comprehensive support and intervention when necessary. By liaising with child protection services, healthcare professionals, and other relevant organisations, we ensure that our safeguarding measures are thorough, effective, and in line with the latest best practices.
At Brookhurst Primary, we don't just educate; we care deeply for every child's overall wellbeing. We are dedicated to creating a safe haven where children can flourish, both academically and personally, knowing they are in a safe, caring, and vigilant environment."
